Set Difficulty Before The Game

Players will be able to set the difficulty of the game before starting the story. The difficulty will affect different aspects of the gameplay such as enemies and combat mechanics.

Change Difficulty Mid-Game

Differences In Difficulty Options

Enemy Aggression

Enemy Aggression

The difficulty will affect the enemy's aggression towards players during encounters. This means that easier modes will have more breathing room in between attacks, while harder modes will keep you on your toes!

Timing During Combat

Timing During Combat

The game's combat system puts a heavy emphasis on a player's skill. Timing your parries and dodges will help you execute devastating counterattacks against enemies. As the difficulty rises, the timing for dodging and parrying becomes smaller.

No Changes In Enemy Health

The game does not alter the enemy's health no matter which difficulty setting. This is to preserve the lethality of the katana weapon.
